Armed forces and FCO families

Christ’s Hospital offers financially assisted places to children of personnel serving in the Armed Forces, former members of the Armed Forces and FCO families.

Christ’s Hospital is one of only four co-educational full boarding senior schools in the country. The advantage of full boarding is that all students stay at school twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Weekends at CH are very busy, with lessons on Saturday morning, sport in the afternoon plus a wide variety of activities throughout the weekend.

Man entry points are at 11+, 13+ and 16+. The School offers iGCSE, GCSE and in the Sixth Form, a choice of A levels.

Means-assessed bursaries are available for FCO and Service families. For FCO and Service families who do not qualify for one of our means-assessed bursaries we offer a discount of 10% on full boarding fees. When you first complete the registration form kindly tick the box asking about bursary support. Once you have done that we will send you all of the relevant forms for you to fill in to explain your circumstances – these become increasingly detailed and require proof (e.g. in the form of bank statements etc.) as the applicant moves through the admissions process.

Visiting Christ’s Hospital
